Gumstix, Inc. Introduces Faster, More Versatile Verdex(TM) Product Line - Doubles Memory and Increases Speed by 50%

PORTOLA VALLEY, Calif., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Gumstix, Inc., maker of the world's smallest full-function miniature computers, today announce their verdex motherboards with a Marvell(R) PXA270 CPU offering USB host, CCD camera input, improved power management along with the twice as much memory and 50% more processor speed. These tiny motherboards power fully functional network servers yet fit in the palm of one's hand.

Gumstix' fastest verdex motherboard, the verdex XL6P, comes with a 600 MHz PXA270 processor, 128MB RAM, 32MB flash and three on-board connectors for expansion board connectivity: a 60-pin connector familiar to existing customers, and new 24-pin flex and 120-pin board-to-board connectors.

"With the evolution of computing in the automotive and transportation industry, a compact and resilient design is required to make a product that will meet the industries needs. The verdex motherboard has addressed these requirements by offering a powerful, feature rich processor in a small package. The four hole mounting design for component boards makes it versatile and configurable yet rugged enough for most commercial grade applications."

"Our customers build network appliances, commercial metering products, fleet management devices and security applications" said W. Gordon Kruberg, CEO and President of Gumstix, Inc. "Some of these features, particularly the USB Host function, fulfill long-standing requests from our customers."

Every verdex motherboard comes preinstalled with the latest Linux 2.6 operating system and the open source u-boot boot-loader. All technical information may be found on the gumstix wiki via the support tab at http://docwiki.gumstix.org/Verdex.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
